Event description

Description


This exciting regional event will showcase work that is currently being done in schools to effectively reduce teacher workload. You will have the chance to hear an introductory address by Dawn Copping, Chair of the Independent Review Group on reducing workload associated with marking, and whose school has drastically reduced time spent on marking with no loss of standards.

You can then participate in four workshops run by serving teachers and leaders, linked to the independent review group reports on reducing workload on marking and feedback; data management and assessment; planning. You will also have the opportunity to attend a workshop to help shape policy to help support teachers at the early stages of their careers.

The cost of standard class travel will be reimbursed for all school-based/school-attached attendees (subject to DfE guidelines that will be emailed prior to the event). Please note this does not include taxi fares unless there has been prior written agreement between the attendee and the DfE.

Confirmed workshops are:

  • Marking and feedback led by David Lowbridge-Ellis, Barr Beacon School

  • Planning and resourcing led by Linda Buckle and Andy Sherlaw, Whitley Bay High School

  • Using education technology to reduce workload led by Kirsty Tonks, Shireland Collegiate College

  • Shaping policy to support teachers at the early stages of their careers led by the DfE Teaching Profession Unit

Who is this event for?

Leaders from all types of school are encouraged to attend with a member of their governing board and sign up together. The event is aimed at those in and around Birmingham and the West Midlands only as further regional events will be planned, and for those leaders who have not attended a reducing workload event in the past.
